Based in New York, Vicky Azcoitia is an independent documentary photographer native from Spain. Her work strives to address the importance of our natural environment, as well as to foster its respect and renewal. For the last six months though, she is been working on a long photo-essay about fatherhood in our modern society. While developing her own projects, she has also sequenced and photo edited for photographers stories related to our natural environment.

Last year, her first collaboration with her partner, Adam Lederer as the writer, was published in Natural History Magazine, and received a Grant for Excellent Report from the Friends of Natural History Foundation. In 2013, Vicky Azcoitia was selected by New York Foundation of Arts and the Spanish Cultural Council for Artepreneur in New York City. 

Through the years, Vicky has exhibited her work internationally; such as at the International Center of Photography Hillman Gallery in 2010, the Museum of the City of New York in 2013, the Chefchaouen International Photography Festival in Morocco 2016, and lately at the SVA Gramercy Gallery in New York. 

Recently graduated, Vicky holds a Master in Professional Studies in Digital Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where she received the MPS Digital Photography Thesis Scholarship, and was honored for exceptional work with the Paula Rhodes Memorial Award.

Other studies in Graphic Design from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid, Photo-Story Editing from the Brighton Museum in England, Documentary Photography and Photojournalism from the International Center of Photography in New York City.
